Emotions were running high at Croke Park this evening as Limerick managed to record their first All-Ireland win since 1973.
There’ll be some serious celebrations amongst their support tonight and perhaps even for the next week or two, that’s for sure!
It really has been a frustrating time for Limerick’s hurlers, who, like manager John Kiely pointed out, have consistently found themselves as the ‘bridesmaids’ instead of the bride.
Well, today, Limerick well and truly arrived and managed to record a soon-to-be-legendary win in emphatic fashion.
And while the post-match speech given by captain Declan Hannon was goosebump-worthy, it was Shane Dowling’s call to the county’s support that perhaps stole the show.
